is in decline. researchers at the australian institute of marine science say the reef has lost half of its coral cover over the past 27 years. there are multiple causes, including a destructive kind of starfish shown here. we look at what's behind it and what's at stake-- in australia and around the world-- with nancy knowlton, a coral reef biologist and a chair of marine science at the smithsonian national museum of natural history here in washington. welcome. >> thanks. how has all of this coral died off? do we know what's causing it? is it all that... >> it's not all the star fish. the star fish is about 42%. typhoons, big strong storms another 48% and then coral bleaching is the remaining 10% which is caused whenever the water gets too hot. >> ifill: so this is human causedded? >> yes. most of it is human caused. i mean a coral reef naturally goes through cycles of up and down. but it shouldn't be declining by half over course of 27 years. >> ifill: i feel like we have talked before about the declining coral cover. but not... but i'm wondering whether it's now picking up speed or whether thi

,000 new math and science teachers and create two million more slots in our community colleges so people can get trained for the jobs out there right now. and i want to make sure we keep tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree that our corporate tax rate is it too high. i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking advantage of 25%. i also want to close those loopholes that are get -- giving incentives for companies shipping overseas. i want to provide tax rates for companies here in the united states. governor romney and i both agree that we have to boost american energy production, and oil and natural gas production are higher than they have been in years. but i also believe that we have to look at the energy source of the future, like wind, solar, and biofuels and make those investments. so all of this is possible. in order for us to do it, we have to close our deficit. one of the things i'm sure we'll be discussing tonight is how do we deal with our tax code and how do we make sure we are reducing spending in a re
things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> at this very minute. the news minute on tv and online the news media were flooding you with information about who won the debate. i used to be one of those guys. i knew for sure that john kerry won all three of his debates against george bush. but of course he didn't. this is a good time to think about what it means to win a debate. in high school and college debates there are judges to decide which debaters who actually won. those debates have real winners. winners who get real trophies. no one got a trophy but plenty of people guessed at who would have gotten a trophy. the question is they were debating for votes and those votes wouldn't be counted until next month. so all of the winner talk you have been hearing is just guessing and all of the guessers have been wrong before. my guess is about who won debates have been wrong many times which is why it was so easy for me to resist guessing who one last night. you know court reporters are smarter about this. court reporters have
been a strong category. and it continues to be. the sciences are strong. >> any negative implications from these numbers? >> the negative would be the part-time work. it's going to come back to this part-time work number. if you're working part time and that job for example, goes away or alternatively you're getting paid less than what you really need to survive, then obviously people are going to not be able to spend and be part of the economy like we want them. but another big part of the numbers is the 3.5 million job openings that do exist in this country. every time i speak to business leaders, they tell me one of the biggest issues facing the economy going forward is the skills gap that we see. there aren't enough people studying science engineering in this country to fill those jobs. >> stay with us rebecca. >>> we want to go now to nancy cordes at the white house with a question of how this is playing on the campaign trail. nancy, good morning. >> good morning to you charlie. the obama campaign and aides here at the white house will be thrilled by this numb
guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> jennifer: that was mitt romney back in his now infamous florida fund-raiser in may hoping to add to his haul. he's now actually spending as much as he's taken in and a lot of his campaign cash comes from one guy. casino magonate sheldon adelson. you will remember sheldon adelson joined romney on his controversy-filled trip to israel this past summer. adelson has clear interest in israel. i owns an israeli newspaper. he's been a vocal advocate for a tougher american stance against iran on israel's behalf but now it looks like his motives for supporting romney could even be a little more selfish. many of you may know he's under a federal investigation into money laundering at his casino in las vegas and possible violation of bribery laws in china. some observers thought that perhaps he was hoping to shield himself from that investigation by supporting the right candidate. adelson seemed

in 2008 with the greek columns. in 2009, near mile high stadium he was at denver science museum signing the stimulus into law which has had mixed results. a big part of his record handling the economy is here. now denver will decide if he gets another four years. he leaned on bill clinton to make the case this is no way he could have turned this around in four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. the president's mock plan is better in the short run, the long run and a vision where all of us in this together is better than you be often your own. there is no on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good "we are all in this together" strategy. >>reporter: the order of questions is decided. the president gets the first. the problem with the argument that former president clinton made in 2009 president obama said if he didn't turn this around in 3 or 3 1/2 years it would be a one-term proposition. something governor romney will point out. >> the governor aides say -- the obama camp will focus on
how we hire teachers. not to hire new math and science teachers and create 2 million more slots in our community colleges so people can get trained for the jobs out there right now. and i want to make sure we keep tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree are corporate tax rate is too high, so i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing. taken it down to 25%. but i also want to close those loopholes that give incentives for companies shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies investing in the united states upon energy. governor romney and i both agree that we've got to boost american energy production and oil and natural gas production are higher than they have been in years. but i also believe that we've got to look at the energy sources of the future, like wind and solar and biofuels and make those investments. so, all of this is possible. now in order for us to do agree how to to close our deficit in one of the things we will discuss tonight is how do we do with our tax code and how do we make sur
in the name of science. i should actually enlist in that focus group. >> we could be millionaires. great -- all the food on this show. >> we would be large -- living literally. >>> first, the manhunt along the u.s./mexico border. president obama has called the family of 30-year-old border patrol agent nicholas ivy who was killed early yesterday. >> mr. obama promised that ivy's family that those responsible will be found. abc's cecilia vega reports from southern, arizona. >> reporter: it is remote, dangerous, and deadly, and it was here on this dusty stretch of land where arizona meets mexico that three border patrol agents were fired on. one made it out safely. another was shot twice and expected to recover. but the third agent, 30-year-old nicholas ivy, was shot dead. >> we suspect that this is probably some type of narcotics trafficking event. that these agents encountered. but at this time, that would be speculative. >> reporter: the three agents headed to a spot just three miles north of the border. as they headed up a desert hill, someone fired right at them in what is being descri
have trained more than 1,000 math and science teachers. we needed that. we want to recruit these folks to our community colleges. we know we can create two million american workers and give them the skills for the high-tech manufacturing companies in the future. there are 600,000 jobs in america in tech today. that is why we paired up with community colleges, creating thousands and thousands of decent paying jobs, but they oppose it. [applause] we are not only going to continue to provides grants and tuition for after high school education, but we are going to cut the growth of college tuition in half. [cheers and applause] we have already reduced the deficit. in four years, we will reduce it by another $1 trillion. there is an easy way to do this. we have to make some difficult decisions. we have to ask the very wealthy to pay more. ladies and gentlemen, we are going to end the war in afghanistan as we did in iraq. [cheers and applause] and in the process, over the next decade, save over $800 million. we're going to come home with that money and put half of it down to reduce the debt
and science teachers. we need that to moveorward as a country. >> that's a goal though, right? >> educating, training two million new workers in our community colleges in conjunction with business to fill jobs that are open right now. boosting american manufacturing by ending the tax break that sends jobs overseas and giving tax incentives to companies that start manufacturing businesses here. these are specific tangible proposals and, candy, i believe that they will pass because i believe the american people are supportive of that. >> but they haven't passed. >> a jury will render verdict november 6th. >> no, they haven't. >> for two years jobs -- >> some of the specific proposals haven't, but, candy, think about the logical extension of what you're saying. what you're saying is so we select the other guy because he will implement the proposals of the republican congress has pushed to cut taxes by $5 trillion skewed to the wealthy, can't pay for it. that will add burdens to the middle class to slash education, to slash research and development. >> i'm not suggesting -- >> he could get thos
's some political science that suggests obama's approval rating is higher than it should be because he's getting a certain benefit of the doubt because people still remember who was president in september 2008, remember where the economy was in january 2009 and giving them, like clinton did at the convention, willing to give obama a little more slack than they would be giving the normal president with 8% unemployment. >> what do you think is the thing to look for tonight? >> to me, you were getting at this in the first segment, involves specificity. he know obama will show up and demand romney start providing details about, you want to cut taxes for everybody, deficit neutral, you say you'll deal with deductions and loopholes so let's talk about which deductions and loopholes. it's standard for the opponent to do that. is jim lehrer going to be there demanding and pressing for specific answers from romney that romney has refused to give in this campaign for obvious reasons because they would be politically poisonous if he gets into them. >> will jim lehrer hope the other guy will do it
, rational thought. the current party has waged a war in science. climate denial is horrifying. it's war on reason. you cited former vice president dick cheney that deficits do not matter. karl rove said it that we create our own realities. you live in it. a romney pollsters said we will not be restricted by fact checkers. i refer to a post-truth world. the problem is the policy oriented. the party has been captured by people like grover norquist who is a ferocious anti-tax ideologue who has forced many members of the house and senate to abide by his pledge of no tax increases. where do you get the revenue to help build the country? when people talk about the deficit -- it is not the deficit or debt but joblessness which is the great crisis of our times. the deficit and debt did not arrive from some inaccurate conception. -- immaculate conception. two unfunded wars, medicare part d. let them speak to that. mitt romney has it fantastical approach to arithmetic. at the bottom of it, there is a commitment and an ideology to insuring that the top 1% make out real well. those most vulnerable
excellent question, scott. race has no biological basis. science rejects the concept. that's why when people ascribe biological certainties to race, they sound racist, but race is real as a social construct. it has so much social and political meaning and it's shaped so much of society that even if you think you're color blind, the perceptions of race are so baked into society you can't even easily super seisedem by being myopic. as dr. lopez once wrote, social meanings connect our faces to our souls, race is neither an essence nor an illusion but rather an ongoing contradictory self-reinforcing process subject to the macro forces of social and political struggle and the microeffects of daily decisions. that does to for the cycle. do you have any good on the show today? >> yes and you have stolen 40 seconds of my show and i'm not going to talk to you. good news for america fuels a republican conspiracy theory bigger than alien abduction. ♪ >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> there is widespread mistrust
a strong science and technology directorate that has worked cooperatively to develop tests and transition deployable cyber solutions and technology. among its many projects, it is leading efforts to develop more secure internet protocol to protect consumers and industry. because each member of the public plays an important role in saturday -- cyber security, which sponsored a campaign which is a year-round effort designed to engage and challenged americans to join the effort to practice and promote safe on- line practices. we want good cyber habits to be as ingrained and as familiar as putting on your seat belt. if you are not already a friend of the campaign, i encourage you to join today. in a few days, we will kick off national cyber security awareness month which is an opportunity each october to emphasize the culture of shared responsibility necessary to maintain a safe, secure, and resilience cyber environment appeared we must work internationally because the cyber demint does not respect traditional national boundaries. attacks can and do to emanate from any place around the world.
's not an accident. it was actually planned in the name of science, trying to prove if you could survive a catastrophe just like this. people behind the fiery experiment will join us to talk about what they learned. >>> an emotional ann romney talks about a ritual her husband will prepare before the presidential debate. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." how can mitt romney take on the cheaters... when he's taking their side? on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car.

and science teachers to improve our education, doubling our exports, all those things that will help create jobs as we move forward and strengthen our economy. i was struck by kevin's answer about the fact that once again the romney campaign says they really don't have time to discuss the specifics of their tax plan. and, you know, this is a $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy. >> we also haven't heard the specifics of what the president prepared to do in terms of spending cuts as well. >> i don't think that's true. if you look at the budget plan that the president is outlining, $4 trillion spending cut plan that deals with making sure that our tax code is fair and that those that are on the upper end of that tax code are pay iing a little bit more. let's be clear, mitt romney's $5 trillion tax plan isn't hard to explain because of the time. it's hard to explain because of the math. the math doesn't add up. $5 trillion isn't paid for. what that requires, as economic studies have shown, is that mitt romney will have to raise taxes on middle class families. >> speaking of middle class familie
as chairman of the house committee on science and technology. bart is working with the brookings institution to improve public sector leadership is part of our new initiative on improving leadership and management. william kristol is the editor of "the weekly standard," which he cofounded in 1995. purchaser is not view of the project for the republican future. he also served as chief of staff to vice president quayle and secretary of education, bill bennett. he also served to john mccain. all of these t-bill regularly on fox news sunday in the fox news channel. i actually met ellen 1981 when he was a very young assistant professor at the university of pennsylvania. it's been great to see all the things he's accomplished since that time. so the question i would like to pose for each of you, and i'll start with governor huntsman. what does the 2012 election reveal about the respective leadership styles of obama and romney? >> probably not much. >> okay, what this panel -- >> see you later. >> you can extrapolate a few things from president obama's first term that might be instructive. he isn't
isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> we've heard it all morning long it and still makes us jump. a huge 747 crashing in the dessert, by remote control, all part of the discover channel's new "curiosity" series where a controlled experiment was captured by 40 cameras and sensors to give researchers what happens during a crash atlantaing. >> it airs on discovery channel this sunday night at 9 p.m. two top experts are here with us now, accident investigator dr. tom barth and dr. cindy bir. >> thank you for being with us this morning. we're very excited about this. >> i asked you, dr. bir, earlier, have you ever attempted to do this before and you said you have. this took over four years to plan. why did you want to crash a plane? >> we were -- i was approached by a production company to do this about four years ago. i think tom and i were approached about the same sometime. and was just such an interesting project. i didn't attempt it before, but it was attempted back in '84. and they had lessons learned. we have new technology. so, it was a wonderful opp
. and now we've got to do mor by hiring 100,000 new math and science teachers. by making sure that we're providing millions of new slots for folks to retrain at community colleges for the jobs that exist right now. continue to lower tuition costs for students so they're not loaded up with debt once they graduate. my opponent thinks that it makes sense for us to gut our investment in education in order to give a tax break to the wealthy. i disagree. i think what the united states of america means is that no child should be deprived of a good education. it means that no family should have to set aside a college acceptance letter just because they don't have the money. and no employer should have to look for workers with the right skills in china instead of the united states of america. i want us to focus on education. that's what we've been doing. that's what we're going to keep on doing in a second term when i'm president of the united states. >> all right. so you get a flavor of what the president's saying at a fundraiser. he's doing a few of these fundraisers here in washington today
. and so, you know, eventually i ended up in you see santa barbara as a student of political science. i think having grown up rural and kind kind of small, i guess i never imagined i could work in the white house or be part of the political campaign like the obama campaign. so i always coming in now, i was let the chance to do is talk like this because i hope there is something a mystery that might be inspiring as you allege are your success. and i think washington d.c. was for me on the other side of the road when i was going up but i know the world is smaller now and more accessible. but i think we can dream big dreams as my boss likes to tell me. my old boss likes of tommy. so we are going to talk about kind of my path to the white house. just quickly though, so i like to say that everything i learned about winning and success they learned on the campaign trail. there is always a winner and a loser. the political environment, just like the business world is highly competitive. and with every campaign season, there's always innovation incubators if you will. and so, guess the campaign
straightforward guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> you're entitled as a president to your own airplane and your own house but not your own facts. >> that might have been one of the rehearsed zingers from mitt romney we've been hearing about. meanwhile, the president fought back with a little bit of sarcasm. >> at some point, i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they're too good? >> this morning, a brand-new cnn poll tells us who came out on top. >> welcome back to "early start," everyone. i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. 31 minutes past the hour here. >>> after countless attacks on the trail, president obama and republican challenger mitt romney finally met face to face. and? you look at cnn's polling, viewers thought the winner was crystal clear. >> 67% of debate watchers surveyed thought romney won, hands down. so i want to bring in richard so socrat socrates, and our own da

educational system with new math and science teachers. a whole host of things that we can continue to do to strengthen our economy, put the middle class back to work, and give them a real sense of security. >> the pew research center came out with a poll. they asked the question, who will do a better job in wednesday's debate? this is registered voters. look at this, robert, 51% thought the president would do a better job. romney, 29%. i assume this puts a lot of pressure on the president. he's really got to deliver, doesn't he? >> reporter: well, look, you know, i think the president certainly has come on to the scene, and you heard him give big speeches, but this is a very different format. you know, the president hasn't done this in four years, but, look, and i think the president looks at this not as a boxing match, or as you've heard the romney campaign talk about they're practicing zingers and, you know, sharp lines. i think what the president, again, wants too is have a direct conversation with the american people. talk to them about where they are and where we need to go. and i t
skills here in the united states. so i need you to help me recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers, improve early childhood education, give two million workers the chance to learn skills the community college that will lead directly to a job. help us work with colleges and universities like this one to cut the growth of tuition costs so that you guys aren't overburdened with debt when you graduate. that's a goal we can meet. we can choose that future for america. we're going to have to do something about the deficit. but we've got to do it in a smart way. i said i'd cut the deficit by $4 trillion through a mix of spending cuts and higher taxes on the wealthiest of americans. i've already worked with republicans to cut a trillion dollars in spending. i'm willing to do more. i want to reform the tax code so it's simple and fair. but i'm also going to ask the wealthiest among us to pay a higher tax on incomes over $250,000. the same rate we had when bill clinton was president created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus. and look, the whole economy does well when taxes ar
